She was dubious about the whole pony riding thing, but she tried to make the best of it!
We've been having fun times during the weekends, even though we sorely miss Daddy. Some weekends we go to PopPop and Nanna's house and others they come here. They leave us a present in the form of Auntie Nee for a couple of nights, so we don't have to be alone! This past weekend we went to a pumpkin festival and took plenty of pictures so Daddy wouldn't have to miss out.
God gave us an unexpected blessing when Mr.S's boss asked him to handle some work that needed to be done in one of their offices -- a little over FOUR MILES from our house! Today we had our first taste of Daddy home for lunch and it was wonderful. He'll be there for a little while, so we have at the least a few weeks of this wonderful short commute.
Today little Lena went to the doctor for a weight check (she's petite like her Momma), and we discussed her upcoming visit to a specialist for the strawberry hemangioma she has on her shoulder. The doctor wants us to talk to a plastic surgeon about it, because it seems that there is a lot of vascular business going on there. He doesn't seem overly worried, but everytime a parent hears the word surgeon - it doesn't create the most pleasant feeling in the pit of one's stomach. Please pray that if it is God's will, that she won't need surgery, and that the whole thing will disappear on its own. We go to the surgeon in three weeks. Of course we know that even if she needs surgery, that God will lovingly guide us through the process.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
